Who’s Danette?

Danette and a few of her nieces and nephews

For a good chunk of my life I worked as a biologist but eventually the universe led me down a different path. Photography discovered me you see, and not the other way around. I identified myself more as a photographer than as a scientist and eventually started to photograph weddings to satisfy the creative urgings in my brain. I finally felt like I had a true purpose in this life. Meet me for lunch one day and I will tell you the rest of the story of how I got here. 🙂


What do I photograph?

I specialize in weddings, couples, and families.


Why do I do this?

I have always said what I like most about weddings is that they offer countless moments that are waiting to be captured, and at the end of the day it makes me completely satisfied that I can deliver this to you. Because after all, the photos aren’t just for you, but for your future relatives. They deserve to see the real you.


How do I do this?

For weddings, I work as unobtrusively as possible, shooting your story as it is happening. I’ll direct if I need to during the portraits, but I am always looking for organic and real moments. Essentially, I strive to photograph people in their natural element, capturing their personalities and essence. The good stuff.


Where am I? 

I’m based in a tiny little town called Glen Gardner (a few miles from Clinton) which is in Hunterdon County in New Jersey. It’s about an hour from NYC, a little over an hour from Philadelphia, but I don’t let time or distance limit to where I photograph. Wherever you fancy, I will be there.


What next?
